Beat the winter blues with our new seasonal menu.

Throughout this month we’ve been launching our new seasonal menu.

Matt and the team have been busy in the kitchen creating some brilliant new dishes for you all to savour throughout these long winter months. After a successful staff tasting session, we are certain that this menu will really hit the spot with our customers.

Favourites from the menu include:

From our smaller plates – ‘Treacle cured trout, celeriac remoulade, dill mayo’. Slow grown for two years in fast flowing pure chalk stream water, this trout is lean with a clean taste, served with celeriac remoulade and dill mayo, this is a starter not to be missed.

From the bigger plates we have ‘Orchard farm pork chop, dauphinoise, cabbage, trompettes, jus’. This new dish, which is already very popular, features pork from Orchard Farm, near the River Alde in Suffolk, and is locally sourced from our friends at Burt’s Butchers in East Sussex.

Finally, for pudding, an irresistible ‘Rhubarb and custard baked alaska’. Stem-ginger cake, rhubarb compote, rhubarb & custard ice-cream, covered in a tasty Italian meringue. Bringing back memories of a childhood sweetshop this incredible dessert is guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth.

All our new dishes are made from fresh, seasonal ingredients and are all sourced from our hand-picked list of artisan local suppliers.

An evening with Waterkloof

Earlier this month we held a very successful ‘Wine Producer Supper’. Hosted by our friends at Hennings Wine Merchants, the evening introduced guests to some of the wines produced by the ‘Waterkloof Winery’ near Gordon’s Bay in South Africa.

Louis Boutinot, one half of the Father and Son team behind the winery, joined us for the evening and shared the family’s story which began in 1940s wartime France. Louis also talked us through the winery’s unique and biodynamic winemaking process and shared tasting notes for the wines paired with each of our delicious courses.

All our guests had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and were completely captivated by Waterkloof’s fascinating story. Our wonderful four course supper went down a storm and guests were treated to a first-class menu alongside perfectly paired wines from Waterkloof.

We have a whole host of wine events planned for 2020 so make sure you keep an eye out on all our social media platforms for further details. Also, if wine is your thing, make sure you register your interest to become a member of our wine club at:

Beers, Balls and Banter Back at The Bull

Following on from the incredible Rugby World Cup last year, the Six Nations tournament is now in full swing and we will be showing all the upcoming fixtures here at The Bull.

After a great start at the beginning of this month, the tournament will continue throughout February and March and we’re inviting you to come on down to ours for some serious Beer, Balls and Banter action throughout the matches.

During the tournament we will have our very own Bedlam Brewery’s ‘Six Nations Ale’ available for you to enjoy whilst you cheer on our boys. At 4.5% this beer is made from the finest English Malts & Oats & 4 local hops including Bramling Cross. A beer for winners, this deep golden Pale ale is a true English champion that brings clean citrus flavours with assertive notes of pine, cedar & blackcurrant.

Matches will be shown on our flat screen TVs in either The Snug area or the Old Cookhouse. We’re even throwing in free snacks during any England games – what’s not to love?!
